How to replace a wheel speed sensor

if abs [also speed] sensor is damaged better off replacing hub most sensors are incorporated into the hub or are a ring style that is a press fit around the hub and still have to remove hub to replace--- larger vehicles and some cross overs u can remove just the sensor not in your case --if just wire damaged can order and replace but if abs needs to be replaced than prior to removing wheel loosen center axle nut dont remove yet jack up and support vehicle- remove wheel,brake caliper,brake bracket,rotor and center axle nut ,disconnect abs wire connection and remove the 3 bolts at rear of hub and remove hub from spindle clean area and reinstall hub careful of wire connection replace all components

Change front brakesensor saab 9-5

Step 1 - First, you must locate the malfunctioning wheel sensor. This is done by using a scan tool or multi-meter. Plug in an ABS scan tool and follow the prompts to retrieve the trouble code associated with a failed wheel speed sensor.

Step 2 - If a scan tool is not available you can use a voltage multi meter. Disconnect the wiring connector at each wheel. Next attach the meter leads to each of the ABS connector terminals that lead to the wheel sensor being tested.

Step 3 - Once the failed wheel sensor has being discovered remove the sensor mounting bolts, or remove the tire and bearing hub. (Some ABS wheel sensors are intergraded into the wheel bearing hub)

Step 4 - Next, Inspect the sensor stator ring to confirm that there is no damage existing to the ring. If the ring shows signs or damage replacement is required.

Step 5 - Then, reinstall the new sensor or wheel bearing hub and reassemble.

Step 6 - Reconnect the electrical connector.
Once the new sensor is installed the system should run tests confirming is operating normally. At this point the warning light will go out. Some systems might require a ABS scan tool to reset the system, but this not typical.

How to clean wheel sensor jaguar xj8

This all depends on if it is a wheel sensor. you will need to locate the sensor which is one on each wheel, remove the sensor and just clean off. reinstall sensor.
The best thing to do is have the computer scanned to see what code is stored, the code will tell you what the problem may be. For example if there is a code that reads left front speed sensor signal loss. then you would check that sensor and the connector to sensor, you would also look at abs tone ring. the tone ring is the ring that the sensor ride over.
I am not sure if the ring is external, you will need to look and see, cleaning the ring is a good idea also. good day.

Abs activates just before truck stops (2005 chevy silverado) wheels not skidding, assuming a wheel sensor is bad, how do find out which one, or is the problem in the abs computer, abs light does not come...

This is a condition known as over active ABS. GM has a technical service bulletin for this. Basically what it say is to remove the front wheel speed sensors from the hubs, clean the mating surface between the sensor and the hub, apply some di-electric grease over the cleaned area, and reinstall the sensor.

You can try this on the front sensors and see if the problem goes away. I will warn you that you need to be very careful removing the sensor from the hub as they can break off. If it breaks off in the hub you will need to replace the hub and bearing.

You can also check to see if one of the front wheel bearings is loose. with the tire off the ground grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull. if the wheel moves and you can see the rotor moving also than the wheel bearing may be sloppy enough for internal exciter ring to get an excessive gap from the abs sensor.

The easiest thing to do is look at wheel speed data on a higher end scan tool. When the symptom happens you will see the wheel speed drop out. Whatever wheel drops out is the wheel that needs to be checked.

Hope that helps.

I have a 1998 jaguar xj8 i changed the steering wheel knuckle abs ring break pads caliper and now the abs sign is on?

Did you turn the key on at any time when the wheelspeed sensor (this is what detects the rotation of the "ABS ring") was disconnected? You may have to interrogate the ABS controller with a diagnostic computer to read the diagnostic trouble codes and then clear them. Also, you may have to drive the car 10km per hour for a few moments after the codes are cleared to get the light to go out.

2001 silverado 4x4 abs brake keeps coming on

in these trucks if the front abs activates at low speeds it is normally because of the wheel speed sensors in the front hubs. easy fix is to remove wheel speed sensor from wheel bearing. clean and file cast surface of bearing to allow sensor to move closer to internal reluctor ring. what happens is over time the casting rusts and creates a larger gap. please rate if this works.
